Prurient – “Bermuda Drain” – [Hydra Head Records]
Dominick Fernow has worked a miracle–with his spin on noise and metal, I am a convert. It doesn’t hurt that the song lyrics are printed out on the sleeve, or that he quotes Rilke. Most songs start out with him speaking (or whispering), and he sounds like our own #6, but then they degenerate into a yelling of the lyrics. “Palm Tree Corpse” and “Let’s Make a Slave” stand out, but it is all, as my young son says, awesome.
